Back in the 1970's I was in high school. I needed an amp that would be able to play gigs with my band. The music store had a Marshall head and a sound citry cab so I bought both for $500.. The amp was a 1968 Small Box Plexi. The JTM. 50 watt. It was very clean until you really pushed it. What an amazing amp. I knew nothing about tubes and having to change them. Nobody did back then. The amp eventually died but after a long period of gigs... I sold the pair for $300.. and moved to CA. There I bought a Lab Series L5.. which was okay, but not that marshall. Amazing amp. The Sound City Cab had Fane 12s in it. Great pairing. Cheers!That is to say a Marshall (50-100w NMV Superlead, or a small watt variant, i.e. SV) or has had some plexi-derived amp from another builder or kit, and you now no longer have anything in the vein of the “plexi” with any plans to remedy that situation by getting some such amp in the future?
a person Never having had one with no plans to try one, I get. Having had one with no plans to return ever absolutely fascinates me. Having gone there, I don’t think I could fathom being without one indefinitely. If you are that person, why, and what have you gone off to instead?
